ICE housing migrants at motels
Friday, Oct. 26, 2018
The flow of undocumented immigrants seeking asylum and entering the United States continues to rise, prompting Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release migrant families into the care of several Arizona charity organizations.
These mostly faith based groups now say they are overwhelmed by the number of migrants brought to them and have had to look for creative ways to house them. For example, Catholic Community Services rented out a Tucson motel and converted several different rooms to fit their needs. Some of the spaces were used as a kitchen, makeshift medical center, and clothing donation area, all in an effort to provide shelter for migrants who have crossed the border and are on their way to reunite with loved ones in other locations throughout the U.S.
